published by: DPS-Parks on 1/31/2017
Maple Sugaring at Cass Benton Park will take place on Saturday, March 25. Please register for one start time: 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 – 2:00 p.m.

March is maple-sugaring month in Michigan! Bundle up and join our Naturalists at Cass Benton Park in Northville, where a historic "Sugarbush" still exists. Learn the history of maple sugaring and take a short hike into the woods for a tree-tapping demonstration. Enjoy pancakes with the "real thing" afterwards!

Cass Benton Park is located on the west side of Northville Road, north of Six Mile Road in Northville. Meet at the Cass Benton Picnic Shelter. The program is outdoors and trails can be muddy, so dress accordingly. All ages are welcome, but the wooded area is not stroller friendly.

The fee is $6 per child and $2 per adult (no charge for ages 3 and younger) for Wayne County residents.

Pre-registration is required by calling (734) 261-1990.
